Stubborn facial fat can be notoriously challenging to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. This localized fat tends to persist, even in individuals with an otherwise healthy body weight. Many people find it frustrating as it can undermine facial contours and contribute to the appearance of jowls. Dr. Lisiecki offers personalized face liposuction in NYC to address this stubborn fat, helping you achieve a more sculpted and refined facial profile.
What is face liposuction?
Face liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to remove excess fat from specific areas of the face and neck. It involves using a thin tube called a cannula, which is inserted through tiny incisions in the targeted areas. Through gentle suction, Dr. Lisiecki carefully removes unwanted fat deposits, enhancing facial contours and creating a more defined jawline and chin. This is suitable for those seeking a more youthful and harmonious facial appearance.
The benefits of face liposuction:
- Enhanced facial contours and proportions
- Minimally invasive — only involves a few small incisions
- Quick recovery compared to traditional surgery
- Customizable to individual needs
- Long-lasting results
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized face liposuction technique
Facial liposuction is a precise cosmetic procedure performed by Dr. Lisiecki to refine your facial contours. The process typically begins with a thorough consultation, during which you discuss your goals and expectations. Dr. Lisiecki will assess your facial anatomy to determine the most suitable approach and curate a surgical plan. Dr. Lisiecki performs face liposuction in NYC awake under local anesthesia for your convenience and comfort, though you can request surgery under sedation or general anesthesia according to your preference.
The anesthetic solution reduces pain and bleeding and bruising. Dr. Lisiecki will make tiny incisions near the targeted areas, usually beneath the chin or around the ears. A thin cannula is inserted to break up the fat cells, following which the unwanted fat is carefully suctioned out with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues. Once fat removal is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures. The entire process typically takes an hour or two.
Recovery after a face liposuction surgery
After face liposuction, it’s essential to prioritize your recovery. Initially, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the treated areas, but these effects gradually subside. Early during recovery, you should take it easy and avoid strenuous activities. You must also keep your head elevated while sleeping to minimize swelling. Dr. Lisiecki will provide specific post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth healing process.
You may need to wear a compression garment to support the healing process and maintain your new facial contours. Dr. Lisiecki will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and remove any sutures as needed. Most individuals can return to work and normal activities after a few days, but it’s essential to follow Dr. Lisiecki’s guidance and avoid direct sun exposure during your recovery.
